Have been to see Mr Hasan this morning regarding his op. He said they hope to do the rastelli but it could depend upon a few things and until they open him op:( they wont know - but they will either do that or the nikaidoh. They did an echo to check him over.
They are also doing it now before he starts school as apparantly they are starting to do them sooner so he can get a good few years in school b4 his next op. We are looking at 2-3 more operations after this to get him to his 20's after that they dont know as they dont have any figures for people beyond 30-40 year old. But the likelyhood is that he will need more to correct leaks etc.
Its an all day operation and he has done 10 rastelli's in his career - he said it is a very rare op. but that all patients that have had the op are still with us!
there is a 10-15% risk - (a moderate risk he said) and 4-5 days ICU and 10-15 days on the ward.
Thats a hell of alot longer than i thought it was:confused: We need to see Dr Spencer (the respiritory doc that discharged us) to get his chest sorted as he is really wheezy.
He took my mobile number and I have to wait for a phone call. So now Im waiting and I think its starting to sink in.... x
